Question details

A. Determine whether the scientific method can be applied to the following questions. I you dont understand a question, look for some background information on the internet. 1. Is there a link between childhood vaccinations and autism (a type of brain damage)? 2. Are genetically-modified crops safe for human consumption? 3. Should human embryonic stem cells be used to treat Alzheimers Disease and other types of catastrophic illness? 4. Do the thorns on a rosebush prevent animals from eating the roses? 5. Do positive emotions prolong life? Was the universe, and all life within it, created by a conscious force or entity? 6. Now, try to come up with some hypotheses for one or two of the questions you decided could be answered in a scientific manner. Next, try to come up with hypotheses for some that you decided could not be addressed by science. You might find that learning to see the difference between a testable hypothesis and one that has no merit can be quite challenging! B.
